S2EP1: Cognitive Bias Hazards, Minimizing Frailty Preoperatively and Is Penicillin Allergy a Risk Factor for Infection?
With oral operations, negative outcomes are bound to arise from time to time.
Though, when we take the time to continue to stay informed of possible hazards and complications, we can better avoid these possible outcomes.
On this episode of Dentist Brain Candy, I share three interesting articles from the the Journal of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, including my experience and judgment regarding each topic.
I explain what cognitive and negative bias is and how to avoid it, my experience with frailty and oral surgeries, and my personal insight on penicillin and allergy evaluations.
Listen in for insight on cognitive bias hazards after operative complications, how to minimize frailty preoperatively through prehabilitation and whether or not penicillin allergy is a risk factor for surgical site infection.
